Prep time: South american
Cook time: Servings: 4 Servings


  • 1 long yucca root
  • 4 Tb. extra virgin olive oil
  • salt, to taste


  1. Boil yucca in a large pot of water for approximately 45 minutes, or until very soft. Poke with a sharp knife to make sure it’s thoroughly soft.
  2. Allow to cool then remove thick outer skin as well as thin, stringy cord in the middle.
  3. Roughly chop into semi-thick pieces.
  4. Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan. When oil is hot, add the yucca pieces and salt. Sauté until brown on one side, approximately 3-4 minutes.
  5. Turn each piece over carefully, using a fork or even a fish spatula. Heat the other sides for an additional 3-4 minutes.
  6. Place on a plate with paper towels to absorb the extra oil, if any.
